Farmers Talk About GMOs

Following up on yesterday’s post where I complained about not hearing enough from farmers, here is a wonderful video of farmers explaining why they chose to grow GM crops.

  1. That video tells only part of the story. No mention of weeds and pests evolving to overcome the GM.

    • The farmers are recounting their experience and explaining their choices. If their experience had been negative due to weeds and pests, then they would have mentioned that. They certainly seem to prefer using GM to handling potent pesticides, which as we know are used on organic crops as well and resistance would develop there too.
